The thoughtfully laid-out village includes a barn from 1809, a water-powered mill, a church, a blacksmith shop, and other distinctive structures from the time period. You'll also have the chance to see period furniture, meet the animals that live on site, and visit the restaurant and brewery.

  • A reconstructed pioneer village as it stood at the time. Within a few homes or businesses there are figures that show you the trades or the articulation of home and family. They said that many houses are original and even interiors, paintings, furniture, clothes etc. Really cute!

  • Instantaneously time-traveled back to the 19th century or earlier. Wonderful little village where the whole family is sure to have a good time. The staff are in character all the time and are very knowledgeable. The whole experience can be a very good conversation starter with the kids about the luxuries of the complex modern life versus the simplicity but hard work of time long-gone.
  • I went in the winter months the last time so some of the buildings were closed but I had a great time with my wife. It's an interesting place to go with lots of activities. Lots of fun for kids and adults too.
  • I was amazed to find such an amazing heritage spot in the city. It is located in a quiet street but certainly has lots to offer. The staff were truly friendly and good story tellers. Great performers as well... I'm still keeping lots of the pictures I took. Great experience though I did not get to taste the find products of the brewery.
  • Love this place! I came her for the first time in Grade 4 (1999) and since then it has always struck me as an interesting and authentic place to visit. Full of Canadian (Toronto) heritage.
  • I always enjoy going to the Black Creek Pioneer Village over the christmas holiday's. I find it really helps to put me in the christmas spirit!
